I ask them what was taking them so long and they started pming me vulgar insults, putting me on ignore (before the split), and told me no builds are better then others when I told them they shouldn't be doing elites w/o bringing enough dps to handle the probe spawns. If I hadn't solo'd my side they'd have lost from all the sphere spam as they ignored another players request to leave the gate at 10% health.

So, when the bug happened I just afk'd cloaked, ate dinner and watched them. One would GW the KA boss, another would tbr it out of the gw. One would Tykens the boss, another would tbr it out. It took them 25 min to kill the boss. 4 of them all w/many injuries they wouldn't heal. Of course this made me LoL. By the time I got back from my after dinner smoke, they'd finally killed it.

I got a proto type drop out of it so that and the laughs made the time worth it to me.
This is what is wrong with this game........"I have done enough so i'm not going to help any more".........no real excuss for this, dont matter if people were rude to you, people can be *******s, fact of life, you simple report and ignore, the tools are a mouse click away.

But i dont see what your did that your so proud about.

You missed the point entirely. I pointed out how much I'd done to show they wouldn't have been able to complete the mission if someone wasn't carrying them. I don't play this game to carry other people, though I will do it if they're at least willing to communicate in a civil manner and attempt to coordinate as a team. I've done this quite often including w/a teammate using an all turret boat.

However, they refused to acknowledge the obvious which is they're builds were so bad they needed to be carried and they should change them (3 people on a side were have trouble killing KA probes the easiest ships on elite to kill). They also wouldn't repair (this is 4 people who did this). This combined w/the insults is why I afk cloaked, so they'd learn the hard way how bad their builds were. Since it took them over 25 minutes to do what other PuG groups I've been in under 2 the point was made.

It's then I saw they're team play was just as bad. As I mentioned before they would TBR(or P2W console) the boss out of another players GW multiple times. This is when I lol'd b/c if they hadn't had me on ignore they'd have noticed my heads up not to do this and to repair themselves.

Lastly, I don't agree to just let people be rude w/o consequences. It's perfectly reasonable for someone to stop helping if they've been personally insulted w/o cause from multiple players in a PuG group. Further, if I knew someone had been subjected to the insults I'd been subjected to then I would stop helping even though it wasn't me being targeted. If it meant the mission failed or took the others hours to finish while I afk'd so be it. There's nothing wrong w/self policing poor behavoir.

You're putting words in my mouth. I never expected nor asked them to be "up to my level". I asked for them to be up to the basic task level of killing the easiest NPC to kill in the Elite Space STFs. It's not a high bar.

It is an annoying bug indeed. Happened to be on 4 separate occasions in the past 3 days in KA ground Elite.

On another note, I just came back to the game after a few months and I'm glad that we can now do cross-faction STF's. None of my KDF chars had ever been able to find groups for KA and Terradome. I have Fed chars so I did them with them. However, I know people who only play KDF so those STF's are new to them. Granted they changed a lot but a little pre-match dialogue usually goes a long way. Take charge and tell them what to do. Most people will be glad to finally complete the Optional objectives.

P.S. I have, to this date, not been able to get a group to complete CURE (space and ground) on Elite. Infected and KA, countless times.

You can try the Organized PvP channel. There are times people are putting groups together for grinding STFs. If you want it and ask they'll help you w/buillds et al.
